Future Stories

Future Stories is a series of events that Espoo's Event and Culture Services are organising together with city residents and external partners, and it is built around themes related to sustainable development. The goal of the event series is to address climate anxiety through art. The Future Stories event series seeks out new ways in which to create sustainable culture along with new stories to tell.

The main artwork of Future Stories in Espoonlahti

The Future Stories event series culminates on Espoo Day, 26 August. The main attraction will be a community artwork in Espoonlahti. It addresses climate anxiety and uses sustainable development as its starting point. The artwork will be created during the summer of 2023 in cooperation with residents, external partners and different units of Espoo’s Cultural Venues and Services. The Future Stories event series can be enjoyed throughout the summer at Espoo’s cultural venues and in their yards. The premises of Cultural Venues and Services include the Espoo Cultural Centre in Tapiola, Sello Hall in Leppävaara, Kannusali in Espoon keskus, the Children’s Cultural Centre Aurora in Järvenperä, and the Exhibition Centre WeeGee in Tapiola.  The City of Espoo is committed to achieving the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2025 and being a carbon-neutral city by 2030. Espoo’s Cultural Venues and Services is creating the participatory urban artwork in Espoonlahti on the basis of these ambitious goals.
